Genres vs My Sister

Before going into this, I have no idea what my sister knows about genre. She is 11, so I would say she has a basic understanding of it. But, I wanted to see what she would pick if I asked her to pick a book from a certain genre off my shelves! Her thoughts and reasoning is in quotation marks!

Fantasy: Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

29774026

“Because everybody knows that dragons are from myths and because nobody has saw them before.”

Sci-Fi: The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James

32601841

“I think its that one because it has a space cover on it and usually when the cover and the title has something to do with space it’s sci-fi.”

Contemporary: No answer

“I would say it’s kinda more hard for me because many of your books that you read aren’t realistic and I was going to pick one but I don’t know the story or plotline so I’m not sure.” As a guideline I said this a book that could happen in real life. She couldn’t make a final decision, so she decided to say why she couldn’t settle on one!

Romance: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

36199084

“The people are kissing on the front cover and because it makes sense because they would kiss because it is a romance.” This one was kinda mean since I literally only have a single romance book on my shelf but she got it!

Middle Grade: Smile by Raina Telgemeier

6393631

“I would say Smile because it is a graphic novel because some people my age would find it easier to read since it has a lot of pictures and people would find it to read. It also has an interesting artist details you wouldn’t find it other books.” This isn’t really a genre, but I wanted to see what she would pick!

Horror: Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody

30238163

“I feel like it.” She was pretty much over it at this point haha.

I ended up giving her more direction than I thought I would, but I think she did pretty good! She honestly just loves rummaging threw my shelves haha.

Thank you for reading!
